Dogs love our tasty chicken, and it provides them with essential amino acids they need every day.
Wholesome Whole Grains
Hearty whole grains like brown rice, barley and oats supply the complex carbohydrates that your dog needs for energy.
Healthy Garden Veggies
Whole carrots, sweet potatoes and peas are three of the nutrient-rich vegetables that your dog will get in every bite of BLUE.
The Enhanced Supplementation of our Exclusive LifeSource® Bits
LifeSource® Bits contain a precise blend of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants selected by holistic veterinarians and animal nutritionists. These include ingredients that:
- Immune system health
- Life stage requirements
- Healthy oxidative balance
And LifeSource Bits are cold-formed to help retain the potency of their ingredients—other brands process their foods with heat up to 350°, which can degrade the potency of vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients by up to 75%.
